Great show. I do look forward to returning next year. Thank you!
It was an honor for The Studio Door to work alongside the San Diego Visual Arts Network, Art San Diego, and the Athenaeum on this year's San Diego Art Prize booth. Throughout the weekend, Art San Diego 2017 found very little downtime as artists, art leaders, and patrons filled Wyland Center at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
Many of my colleagues in the San Diego arts community expressed the thought that this year's venue at Del Mar was a great choice. It also made a difference in sales. Continuing to keep the show in North County will help promote a more informed audience and broaden our collector base.
Overall the show was great! I thought the whole RMG team did a super job. The Convention Center is an awesome venue for artists. Loading in and out was the best and I couldn't have asked for a better booth. I sold a painting to a wonderful couple, got enough compliments to feed my ego for months, and made some good gallery connections. The staff, my neighbors and all of the visitors were a pleasure. Thank you!
Redwood Media team did a great job in organizing the whole event, and it was beautiful show in terms of the artworks on exhibit, the presentation of the exhibitors, and the whole layout of the space. The San Diego Convention Center is a very nice facility, well-organized, in a good location, and everything is very convenient.
As always, RMG did a great job. Everything went smoothly considering it was a new venue and there were some unknowns. The auxiliary programs like the Palette of Desserts, the Spotlight Program, and so many more, were all good. We got picked up by a New York gallery, which could prove worth the price of admission. And we had a fun time.
Personally, I gained collectors that I will stay in touch with, even if it’s not always to make a sale. I liked that guests asked lots of questions and that they wanted to hear the story of the person making the art. In my case, as a gallery, I liked sharing my artists stories. A number of people asked to stay in touch. And others visited the gallery to purchase additional art. In all, the guests were dynamic and serious. The Convention Center was more festive and the fair's wider aisles allowed guests to stand back and enjoy the art.
The new location was outstanding, It creates a mentality that legitimizes the art, the artist, and the show to be a premier event to the attendees and San Diego. The event, people, the staff and the effort to promote the exhibitors and event were great. I was able to meet new collectors, expand my guest list for events, shows and invites for next year. The RMG organization is amazing and the events that are held during the show have been consistently great!
The new location at the San Diego Convention Center was better, bigger, and felt more accessible. There were more people and i was happy to get new clients and gallery placement. It definitely exceeded my expectations, I was very pleased with the results. Thank you very much for all or RMG's attention, everyone treated me very well.
What a beautiful event Art San Diego was this year! It was one of the best to date. The new location was so much more beautiful than I expected and the art was wonderful. I only wish I had more time.
